Re: New to Victorious

Hello azcromntic, Sorry for the delay, we had thunderstorms come through this weekend and the internet went out... As for the pdf, Lurker is right I'm afraid. I'd just point out that we gave many of the typo corrections to TLG prior to publication but apparently the Trolls inadvertently sent the no...

Re: Victorious Errata 2017

Okay, so this was my third edit of my post. My son and I are trying to find the 'section' on Damaging Things mentioned for the Armor superpower. Doesn't exist? Overall, the more I read this rule book the more disappointed I become about my purchase. The part about Armor superpower is the damage to t...

New to Victorious

I recently purchased the Victorious hard cover book. I'm familiar with C & C plus AA. I've noted down the errata mentioned on this thread so I can put some sticky notes in my book. My question though is if the pdf version of the rule book has the errata items fixed in it? I really like what I've rea...

Re: Accuracy balance in Sci-Fi characters in Fantasy campaig

... Btw, however, the blaster pistol to which you're referring in the Companion? It doesn't have a +8 bonus. It's only got a +4 accuracy bonus. You mean the one on page 116, right? Unless you're talking about the rifle, which has a +5 bonus. what I had said about +8 is "A 4th level Paladin with 15 ...

Re: Accuracy balance in Sci-Fi characters in Fantasy campaig

More use of the rules in play recently has revealed that the Accuracy bonus, if applied only when the player states they are using AIM combat action, works perfectly; they get the bonus plus the +2 for aiming. Multiple people in the game are combat veterans and attest to the idea that the accuracy b...

Re: Quick question about AA + CC

At 50 yards (ish) or closer, you know, where most combat in these games (and possibly real life) occurs, any benefit of accuracy for hitting center mass of an enemy is so small that it is not worth counting. At about 50 yards any bow type weapons start to break down in accuracy and then you'd be cor...

Re: Player wants healing bot

Well, the player skipped one play session and I played his bots by the rules I posted. The bots did fine, game was balanced, and the heal bot saved a Paladin twice. The player though has not responded recently and so I think they are dropping out of the game. I'll know next Tuesday. Regardless, hope...

I personally think it's just an excuse to get out of the game either because I suck as a GM (which I don't suck that bad) or they are just trying to pump me to give them more "power" so to speak; they're spoiled.

Re: Accuracy balance in Sci-Fi characters in Fantasy campaig

Exactly. But what is more "fair" to take away accuracy bonus or to add some misc bonus for C&C? Overall I think the most fair thing to do would be to take away the Accuracy bonus UNLESS they specify they are using the AIM combat maneuver or maybe specify they are doing a head shot or something where...

Re: Accuracy balance in Sci-Fi characters in Fantasy campaig

The +8 I mentioned is for a Blaster Pistol from the companion book. I'll read the companion book again as it may be advised to manipulate the rules for a combined AA and C&C adventure. I haven't seen anything specific about Accuracy yet though.

Accuracy balance in Sci-Fi characters in Fantasy campaign

Okay, so how is it that "guns" get an additional bonus for accuracy but ranged weapons in C & C do not get such a bonus. What I'm finding is that the C & C classes (characters) are lagging behind in hits and "kills" because the AA characters have an extra bonus to hit for the Accuracy of the weapon....

Your ideas are great. We incorporated some concepts from Star Frontiers which brought in the SEU units. So maybe I'll have to do something with that. Nanobots is not something I had not thought of.
